The Limbic Lab consists of two components: a narrative engine and a media machine. While a subject is vwnieig or interacting with media content, the narrative einnge takes in and syncs real-time data from brain waves, bphcaiysiol data like heart rate, blood flow, body temperature and muscle corciottnan, as well as eye-tracking and facial expressions. Data is curpetad at key places where citraicl plot points, character itrinaotecn or unusual camera angles occur.

Original Text

The Limbic Lab consists of two components: a narrative engine and a media machine. While a subject is viewing or interacting with media content, the narrative engine takes in and syncs real-time data from brain waves, biophysical data like heart rate, blood flow, body temperature and muscle contraction, as well as eye-tracking and facial expressions. Data is captured at key places where critical plot points, character interaction or unusual camera angles occur. Like the final scene in "Game of Thrones, Red Wedding," when shockingly, everybody dies.
